Queen was called "The Logical Successor to Sherlock Holmes. That the name Ellery Queen was a pseudonym of two men teaming as one writer was, for many years, kept from the public.

Queen was called "The Logical Successor to Sherlock Holmes. Ellery Queen's solutions are unique in the annals of crime fiction. But the germ that was to develop into Master Detective Ellery Queen incubated in the mind of at least one of the men since he was a child, and the infection spread to his cousin some time later. When he was twelve years old, Frederic Dannay was sick. Nothing serious, just a childhood illness that kept him home from school for a day or two. His mother brought him a book from the library to help him through his ordeal.

Besides writing the Queen novels, Dannay and Lee cofounded Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, one of the most .

The african traveler

The african traveler. MR. ELLERY QUEEN, WRAPPED loosely in English tweeds and reflections, proceeded-in a manner of speaking-with effort along the eighth-floor corridor of the Arts Building, that sumptuous citadel of the University. The tweeds were pure Bond Street, for Ellery was ever the sartorial fellow; whereas the reflections were Americanese, Ellery’s ears being filled with the peculiar patois of young male and female collegians, and he himself having been Harvard, ’Teen. Well, this affair will be a test-case for all of you. I want to see how your minds work in contact with the real thin. .Miss Ickthorpe, have you a hat or something?

Inspector Queen's Own Case. Only the newborn’s nurse recognizes the death as murder. The nurse reaches out to Inspector Richard Queen, the recently retired father of the legendary amateur sleuth Ellery

Inspector Queen's Own Case. Inspector Richard Queen finally gets a murder case he can call his own When unmarried women get into trouble, A. Burt Finner is waiting at the hospital to save them.

Someone has been murdered, but it’s not Ruth Tully.

Someone has been murdered, but it’s not Ruth Tully. His alibi may be airtight, but his wife’s is not. There’s a warrant out for Ruth’s arrest, and if the cops find her before Tully can uncover the truth, she’ll get the chair.

Looking for trouble, Ellery Queen descends on a small town. At the tail end of the long summer of 1940, there is nowhere in the country more charming than Wrightsville. The Depression has abated, and for the first time in years the city is booming. There is hope in Wrightsville, but Ellery Queen has come looking for death. The mystery author is hoping for fodder for a novel, and he senses the corruption that lurks beneath the apple pie façade. He rents a house owned by the town’s first family, whose three daughters star in most of the local gossip.

The books are sparse on details and the early ones are contrary to the later ones, but I am wondering if anyone ever tried to put together what limited facts about Ellery where revealed in the stories. For example, was there ever any discussion about his mother or how old he was when she died? Any relatives other than his dad? In the Roman Hat Mystery, Ellery is allegedly retired and living in Italy with a wife and child, who are soon never mentioned again as far as I know.

Good anthology with well-known mystery writers.

Murdercade is a collection of shorts from the pages of Ellery Queen Magazine. There are 23 stories and I slogged my way through all of them. However, only a few piqued my fancy and the majority I either didn't get it, or the author's style of writing was so old-fashioned or archaic that it was not worth beating up a dictionary over. Yet the book was published in the 70s.

I won't list all 23 stories since I want to keep this brief review brief!

I was most impressed with the following for not only their flow of words, great characterization and fun twist at the end, the way a mystery should be written:

The Mad Sniper, Avram Davidson. Who is the mysterious person who is shooting at cars on the highway? And what is their real motive? Interesting story of a disgruntled employee.

Robert Bloch, love his writing because of his frightening innuendo and leaves much to the imagination of the reader. This short psychological thriller called See How They Run, about a drunk, a psychiatrist and a desire to reenact a childhood nightmare.

H.R.F. Keating is an author I'm not familiar with, writing a serial story about the Five Senses of Mrs. Craggs, a "charwoman" who solves the various mysteries of various employers - five stories with in a larger story. Quite well done.

I am familiar with Isaac Asimov's "Black Widowers Club", a collection of misfits that gather together and banter about silly things until a big problem comes up, such as this mystery about who stole NASA plans from a ship's cabin. This tale is called, "The Six Suspects." Starts off slow, but it is solved by "Henry", a waiter who always seems to have the one clue all the others have missed. Yes, Asimov writes more than sci-fi!

Not a bad collection; perhaps because the writing feels archaic to me, I was not able to enjoy it as much as others may.

Recommended.
